We favour an integrated approach to risk management education, one that uses discussion and engagement to build the capacity to understand and manage risks at every level in an organization

GRI Education and Training

Building Risk Professionals

As part of our mission to build the capacity of risk professionals in our sector, our Members gain access to GRI’s education programs and networking events. We have several programs underway to improve the skills of risk managers, from new university grads to C-Suite executives to Board members.


GRI believes in engaging directly with our members in order to assist them in building the knowledge and strengthen their risk management team.


Board Risk Oversight and Insight Program

GRI Board Risk Oversight & Insight Program is conducted bi-annually in partnership with the Rotman School of Management. This program covers key aspects of risk oversight in the financial services sector and is available exclusively to Global Risk Institute in Financial Services (GRI) member institutions.




Enterprise Risk Management Roadmap

The Roadmap identifies seven core ERM processes and the associated interdependencies required to achieve the formation of an effective, holistic and integrated approach to ERM in a financial services context. GRI believes that the systematic application of the principles and practices embedded in this Roadmap can materially improve the overall decision quality and experience outcomes that arise in relation to the wide range of risk/return trade-offs inherent in a financial institution’s business strategy and operations.
